Episode 303: Join us on Dadvice TV as Dr. Rosansky and I dive into the latest breakthroughs in Chronic Kidney Disease treatment, specifically targeting how to slow the progression of CKD Stage 3. In this enlightening conversation, we'll explore innovative strategies, recent research, and practical tips to manage your kidney health more effectively. Whether you're navigating the challenges of CKD Stage 3 or supporting someone who is, this video will provide valuable insights into extending the health and functionality of your kidneys, potentially avoiding dialysis, and improving your quality of life. Stay tuned as we unravel new advances in treatment options, dietary recommendations, and lifestyle changes that make a real difference.

Here are some of medications Dr. Rosansky spoke about to help with reducing protein in urine (proteinuria or albuminuria):
1. ACE Inhibitors: ACE inhibitors work by blocking the action of the enzyme responsible for the production of angiotensin II, a hormone that narrows blood vessels and increases blood pressure. Some common ACE inhibitors include:
Benazepril (Lotensin)
Captopril (Capoten)
Enalapril (Vasotec)
Fosinopril (Monopril)
Lisinopril (Prinivil, Zestril)
Quinapril (Accupril)
Ramipril (Altace)

2. ARBs: ARBs block the action of angiotensin II by preventing it from binding to its receptor. This helps relax blood vessels and lower blood pressure. Some common ARBs include:
Candesartan (Atacand)
Irbesartan (Avapro)
Losartan (Cozaar)
Olmesartan (Benicar)
Telmisartan (Micardis)
Valsartan (Diovan)

3. SGLT-2 Inhibitors:
Canagliflozin (Invokana)
Dapagliflozin (Farxiga)
Empagliflozin (Jardiance)
Ertugliflozin (Steglatro)
Sotagliflozin (Zynquista)

4. GLP1 agonists:
Dulaglutide (Trulicity)
Exenatide extended release (Bydureon BCISE)
Exenatide (Byetta)
Semaglutide (Ozempic)
Liraglutide (Victoza, Saxenda)
Lixisenatide (Adlyxin)
Semaglutide (Rybelsus)

5. Aldosterone receptor antagonists:
Eplerenone (Inspra)
Spirinolactone (Aldactone)
Finerenone (Kerendia)
